the freedom of religion, we have laws that protect individuals from being harmed because of how they look or what they believe. we understand why people take offense to this video because millio of our citizens are among them. i know there are some who ask why don't we just ban such a video. and the answer is enshrined in our laws. our constitution protects the right to practic free speech. he in e ud es coess publications provoke offen offense. like me, the majority of americans are christian and yet we do not ban blast felon blast y. ommaeref o military, i accept people will call me awful things every day. and i will always defend their right to do so. [ applause ] americans have fought and died around the globe to protect the right of people to express their true, everyone views that we profoundly disagree with. we do n disso becau we beuse r founders understood that without such protections, the capacity of each individual to express their own views and practice their own faith may be threatened. we do so becausniver society, experts to restrict speech can quickly become a tool to sil

on the wrong-headed view of religion, extreme, narrow-minde and so on d ee iy libya with the tragic death of your ambassador there, it play out in egypt, yemen, syria, iraq. afghanistan, pakistan. this is a battle going on in which i think what we have to do modern mindeselepl side of the it's going to be a very tough struggle in the meantime. >> how much about the way we look at these countries is colored by the last decade of re america and great and britain, their civilians have been killed in these wars, we don't have the stomach to put our men and women in harm's way. do you think that colors theay ci sident obama viewshese decisions? >> well, it's always better to have a coalition together. but i think what's happening which is different now in the past couple of years from the previous ten is that we intervein ine intervened, and so on. this time, it is -- these uprisings are coming from the street. these oppressive regimes are being cast off. but what we learned about the societies and i think you can see thisery clearly from ghanistan, from iraq. when you lift the lid of thi es

he could humanize himself was to talk about his religion. that with a difficult with a conservative political base that was suspicious of mormonism. one of the main things of his record as governor was health care in massachusetts. >> he's talking about it now, he should have talked about it earlier. it's a big achievement. >> it was a risky strategy. >> let's put this in the context of the debates, chuck. were you surprised that christie has decided, do you think the romney campaign is pleased with him saying hey, first debate hits it out of the park thursday morning things are going to be totally different. >> thank you, chris christie for at least actually making the gaffe, the honest gaffe. the fact of the matter is that has to be what happens after the first debate. the narrative has to change. the polls have to move. romney has to clobber the president in the first debate. are they happy with it? i kind of think they needed the pep talk. i think the base needs a pep talk. they need to have confidence in their commercial. i think the idea that both sides playing this ridiculous

was to talk about his religion. that was very difficult during the course of the campaign with the conservative evangelical base suspicious of mormonism. the other thing is talk about his record of governor. one of his main things was health care reform in massachusetts. that also was very hard for him to do. >> he's talking about it now. he should have talked about it earlier. it's a big achievement to cover 98% of the people. >> let's put this in the context of the debates, chuck. are you surprised that christie decided and the romney campaign is saying, first debate, hits it out of the park, thursday morning things will be different? >> thank you, chris christie, for at least making the quote, the gaffe, the honest gaffe. the fact of the matter is, that has to be what happens after this first debate. the narrative has to change. the polls have to move. romney has to clobber the president in the first debate. >> if they don't move, it's over. >> in other words, are they happy with it? i kind of thing they needed the pep talk, ok? i think the base needs a pep talk. they n

, the quintessential american religion. mormanism is all about america being the promised land. and jon finds it a little riouthat gernone n'lkbo that more because in a sense, mormanism is about american exceptionalism. and the fact that governor romney doesn't incorporate that in his whole argument is a curious thing. and the other thinghat he says about mormanism is thatt's gif t and tribulation and escaping prejudice and being under the gun. and, in fact, that also i animating mitt's campaign because he'sind of trying to sail steady in the face of all of this turbulen. tu cusl.aerfect -- it'sot there's a very clear reason why he doesn't talk about it. and it reflects the innate caution of their campaign. they've been worried all along about base voters, evangelical voters and not turning out for him. theye been concerned about that from day one. yocoulrizet ulite that caution, but that's the reason why he doesn't talk about it more. >> but the flip side is also interesting which is nobody else is really talking about it very much. and when you look at the polls, i believe even the evangeli

't conservative enough and didn't put religion into the political marketplace enough. but i don't think that's going to be the widespread expectation of the american people. i think the tea party is seen as a force that energized the republican party initially. but is now really become an anchor around the party. mitt romney has really has not been allowed to advance more mainstream positions because the right and the religious right are holding him back and i think you can find a number of senate seats that the republicans would have captured in 2010. and in 2012. >> we're going to look at one in indiana a little bit later. >> quickly, ed, if it's not the conservative christian coalition that becomes the backlash group, if you will. what might that group look like in terms of demographics at least? >> i think eleanor touched on it at the beginning. if the president is able to win 70% of the hispanic vote or get close to that, republicans and some of them have been talking about it this cycle realize they have to find a way to appeal to the hispanic voters in this country. because if they do
